Fans wish Will Smith’s genie from Aladdin would disappear.
Did you watch the Grammy’s the other night? No, it’s ok, nobody else did either! Ha ha ha ha…I’m only kidding. I guess the few minutes that I was watching the Grammy’s on Sunday night I caught the part where they showed the new “Aladdin” trailer. Yes, the new live-action film, “Aladdin.”
You knew they were making a series of live action Disney films, right? Along with “Aladdin,” they’ll also recreate “Dumbo” live action. Similar to the latest “Jungle Book” live action film.
Apparently, folks aren’t taking too kindly to Will Smith’s genie. I mean, should we take it seriously? How does someone redefine a role that was played to perfection back in the 1990s?
Twitter wasn’t having it on Sunday night either. Here’s what some folks had to say about Will Smith’s blue genie.
One Twitter user wrote, “It turns out that Will Smith’s Aladdin Genie will haunt my nightmares.”
Another said, “The Will Smith genie makes me feel the same way I feel when a celebrity dies: Nauseous, sad, and like I can’t wait to tell everybody about it.”
Will posted the trailer on Instagram along with the caption, “I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!!”
Aladdin opens on May 24th.
